This is really good news. Well spotted, Gizmo.

Paul - the phrase "Yes Minister" was the key one that attracted them in from your press release - something to learn here - a few more... refer to a few of the politicians by name, even if only for a little background info - or maybe, just maybe, get a tad of apoliticalness (well, you know what I mean) in your disclaimer? :idea:

Actually this stuff amounts to paid advertising. I paid them an annual subscription to maintain the mini site and to republish our PRs. This was during the run up to the election and I negotiated a substantial discount (over 50% off and 'three months free') on the subscription.

It does do some good, but probably isn't value for money. In June 2006 it will cost £795 for the next year. I'll probably dump it then.

Ah - I didn't appreciate that. But it does explain the professional approach to how they've laid out the advert.

Professional approach? The article is missing line breaks all over the place, it's a mess.

I was referring to the second link, which repeats (with line breaks I think?) a few of the cogent excerpts from the main site.
